>> shepard: looks like the marks are going to finish the positive this afternoon. we'll see you back here tonight for the fox report. until then. >> about to blow the whistle on benghazi to congress to claim they had been threatened by unnamed. administration officials if they d.a. do, and the president says he doesn't know anything about it. >> there are anymore your own state department say they have been blocked from comg forward. >> i'm not familiar with that's notion that anybody has been blocked from testifying. >> neil: welcome everybody. i'm neil cavutoment the lawyer now saying at least four state department officials and cia officials have been warned thatn ben georgia simple. but another witness who has to have his in is speaking out, saying a oh ho-man
1:01 pm
operations force was in the region and could have responded. >> c-110 had the able to be there, in my opinion, four to six hours from their european theater to reaction. >> they would have been there before the second attack. >> yes. neil: what's really going on here? first ed henry at the white house. >> there's two sets of allegations. in terms of adam houseley's excellent reporting, getting that manta come on camera and athat the people, the four meshes who were killed ine beend by the military. various officials insisted on the record, like -- insist they could not have gotten that help and there's allegations that these witnesses to the terror
1:02 pm
attack in benghazi have been wanting to come forward, maybe do interviews, maybe also talk to lawmakers on capitol hill and have not been able to do so. some alleging blocked. i about that. he says he knows nothing about itut hearing more about this because you have republicans on capitol hill, saying there will be hearing on may 8th to talk to this people who say they witnessed the terror attack in benghazi. why would that be significant? these people have not come forward before. perhaps they know more about exactly how all this went down. what kind of calls for help were requested. how those calls were received. we just frank client know what these witnesses know because they have not spoken out, either on capitol hill or in various media interviews. we should note the secretary of state john kerry today said he is willing to cooperate with congress but there's a lot of misinformation out there about
1:03 pm
benghazi and said, quote, we have to depoliticize this issue. there are republicans on he hill saying, look, then let these witnesses testify. that might be one way to take the mystery out of it. the feeling inside the white house tends to be nat no matter what questions they answer on benghazi, more questions are brought up. >> neil: former cia analyst michael sawyer says all of this smells of a coverup to him. the administration certainly had time to prepare for questions like these, but still no real clear answers to these. >> can't be clear because when the truth come outs they will be lying about it. we have seen so many lies and up and down and the congress has been negligent elm the talking points were probably altered by the guy who is now the head of the cia. instead of al qaeda they put in extremists and that has been his goal to take out the word islamists. mrs. clinton told the congress
1:04 pm
that she had never been informed her ambassador was screaming for more assistance. says either she is a dummy or lying or ordered her security chief not to tell her about ambassadors who were being threatened. and we have a president who couldn't care less about what was going on and went off too las vegas for a fundraiser. so i have no doubt there's confusion and circling the wagons how this happened. nell neil to what end? a lot of americans say, this benghazi thing was so long ago, what difference does it make now, the ambassador is dead, three others are dead. what are you looking for this to teach us, to avoid. what? >> sir, i think what i saw over the course of my career is presidents of both parties being less and less will to military and cia to protect americans. if you remember, the cole attack in october -- i'm are so -- when
1:05 pm
the kohl was attacked it was in the middle of an election campaign. >> neil: august 2000. >> and chin ton did nothing. and obama did. no personally, sir, sat for a year and what happened mr. clinton refuse to gill osama bin laden and perhaps to save every american life that has been lost since. so i think it's very important if there's information out there, within these agencies, that they come forward and say it, because particularly under democrats, i carry no brief -- grief for president bush but there's no doubt in my mind he would haved a least tried to save american lifestyles. >> neil: do you think it got to the president himself? >> absolutely, sir. since 9/11, if an american is in danger, an american facility is in dane. >> -- in danger, that goes to
1:06 pm
the president with his morning briefing. any agency, likely clinton or the cia. if there's a threat to their officers on the ground it goes directly to them. there's a lot of smeared -- intermediaries but it goes right to the top because everybody is concerned with covering their behind. neil: apple maybe not so rotten to the core. a huge demand for the company's $17 billion bond offering today. that's the largest we have enseen from a nonfinancial company in history. that and the richest guy in russia buying $100 million worth of apple stock, lifting apple shares big-time today close to 3% today, which was a very nice way to end the month for apple. a nice way tone the month for the stock market, period. all throw major averages up at least one and a half percent. the sixth straight month of

(announcer) scottrade... ranked "highest in customer loyalty for brokerage and investment companies." these guys all of them dodged the death penalty after this woman got involvedful is this guy hoping for the same? top death penalty attorney judy clark just added to the boston bombing suspect's legal team. chris? >> neil, a number of developments here today, including the dish to dzhokar's defense team, the most
1:11 pm
successful public defender in the nation in terms of helping high-profile clients avoid the death penalty. she is judy clark and has handled several high protile death penalty casesment automatic of her clines received life sentences, including the arizona shooter, loughner, ted kaczynski, and susan smith who drowned her two children in south carolina. a public defender means the public will pay for his defense and many have found our they have been supporting the family for years for a total of roughly $100,000. dzhokar and his brother tamerlan did not directly received benefits but their parents did for years, and that means the suspected bombers indirectly received benefits as well, from 2002 to 2004, and again from 2009 through 2011, and tamerlan received benefits through his wife, katherine russell, in cash and food stamps, from september
1:12 pm
september 2011 until november last year. the state of massachusetts is now conducting an internal investigation of the tsarnaev family's benefits history to determine if all was proper and whether there was sufficient oversight. neil? >> neil: thank you very much. with attorney judy clark onboard are we looking at another plea deal? on the record, greta van susteren. >> it's a good possible but first expect a big fight from judy clark. she has been doing death penalty work for year. more experience than anyone necessary the nation. there will be a good fight put up by judy clark and the rope she puts up a good fight is because the constitution demands it. and it isn't can would you like to do it. she has lots of experience to put up a big fight and her goal is to save his life. >> neil: when she hassed anded at -- has succeeded at this
1:13 pm
stuff in the past what does she use to try to sway folks? >> first of all, she wants to -- going to try to fine out whether or not what he has -- he has not been indicted -- is a death penalty offense. she may then go to the department of justice, because the department of justice will make the decision whether or not to seek the death penalty. she'll try to fight it there. then once -- if the justice department seeks the death penalty she'll try to fight it in court and do everything she took make sheer he is not found guilty of the crime. that's tough when your cline is taught on tape, about if you can fine any sort of weakness in the case, it may eventually enup in a plea agreement. the united states would rather have a plea agreement putting him away forever than actually putting him to death. even more than that, if this defendant has some information, maybe his mother was involved and if he turns on his mother.
1:14 pm
that's the kind of information that would make the justice department want to plea deal with him. this guy is not going anyplace. but the question is, whether he gets death or not, and she is going to do -- at every stage she'll try to figure out some way sew the death penalty comes off the table. >> neil: meantime he has at least three different lawyers and maybe more could be coming. there's a potential of him tripping over themselves. >> not likely. when you get the public defenders, and you get judy clark in the game it is like a symphony from the defense. they're not going to be falling all over each other and she is not going to be racing to the cameras. i have been interviewing lawyers for 20 years ex-never interviewed judy exchange only works on her case and has her eye on the ball. a very serious lawyer. i think they will have this run like a fine symphony from the defense standpoint but they have a really difficult job.
1:15 pm
their client is taught on tape committing the offense but don't expect them to be tripping all over each other. the justice department has a tough opponent but they got the goods, the videotape. >> neil: and the history of terry nichols-sentenced to toy and was executed. what was the difference there? what made an execution the end game there? >> lawyers are lawyers, not magicians. you fight the case every step of the way, but there are some instances when your client does get put to death. there's nothing going for your client. horrible crime. look, neil, when this case is indicted it's not going to be a weapon of mass destruction charge. that will be one of them. there will be four murder counts, 270 or 300 attempted murder counts. this is a big, fat indictment. this is an uphill bat for even judy clock who has won an awful lot of case, and by won i don't mean guilt-innocent, mine kept
1:16 pm
her client from being executed but there are instances your client has nothing to offer, shows in remorse, your chinese client haunt done the worst. this is like the oklahoma city bombing case because they went there, they and a half it, they spotted the people, they saw that eight-year-old child. they say everything and they sill did it anyway. juries don't like that at all when they're trying to decide death or whether or not they should give someone a break. timothy mcvey cased the joint six months earlier, knew there was the preschool there and still did it anyway. well, judy clark has her hands -- got a lot of work here pause her client saw the people that they put the been next to, and then killed. >> neil: wow. greta, this might be coming up on your show tonight. >> thank you, neil. >> neil: yesterday it hit 80 degrees in denver.

we have snow in denver, snow in minneapolis. snow in south dakota. just one small teeny little problem. it's spring! but for a lot of these guys the second coldest spring on record thus far, and the weather authority says it could be the coldest when all is said and done, or should i say snowed and done. joe? what's going on here? >> well, about three weeks ago i made a comment this could be a year without a spring in the northern plains when it's all said and done. the spring season is march through may. the summer season is june through august as far as
1:21 pm
meteorologists are concerned. be may just break into summer suddenly after three cold months where there was virtually no spring. we keep getting little shots of warm air but they're reversed and met with enthusiasm and vigor by the arctic, and you're going to see another example this week and maybe next week again. only 5% of the corn crop is planted. normally 31%, and i'm looking at this overall pattern. i see a cold may and if we get a cold may, we probably will have the coldest spring on record because in 1975 we were rivaling this. a little colder in 197 5. but may was warm from the plains eastward that year. not this year. this is going to keep coming. >> neil: if that's the case any correlation between a particularly cold spring and what you have in the summer? what? >> well, we've been less than enthusiastic on the summer being as hot as the past three summers. in fact if you look back to the
1:22 pm
early '50s you had three torrid summers in a row, and then it was still hot but it was nose as hot, and i think this year in the midwest, the great lakes, perhaps northeast, it's a much more normal summer. i think the west is going to bake and probably going to get a lot of the heat into the western high plains and west texas and those areas but probably a shadow this year where it's not as hot, where there's a lot of precipitation, and the midwest and into the great lakes, a more -- while all this is going on, the seeds are being planted for a big hurricane season. we were on about that earlier. i think this is going to be a big hurricane season. >> neil: climate change have anything to do with any of the above? >> you know, last year the united states had one of the warmest springs on record. the year before the tornadoes. all we heard about was global warming, and yet you look at the entire global picture it was colder than normal last march but they pick out one thing. have you heard anything on the other direction now? no.
1:23 pm
this is nature doing what nature does, which is balancing itself out. the atmosphere is search of a balance it can't find because of the design of the system. that is a natural design, has nothing to do with global warming. >> neil: thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. always a pressure. >> neil: the longer the cold, the higher the heating bill and god knows what other bills. what do you think? >> i'm telling you, right now, it's looking bad, neil. this is a time when heating bills should be gene down and we should be turning off the heat and turning on the air conditioning, and in the natural gas prices, those prices shot up over 5% in the last two weeks. heating oil, over 1.4%, and this isn't supposed to be happening. if you look at the natural gas market. this was the market that we were supposed to have so much supply that we would never cut into it. mother nature pulled fool the
1:24 pm
traders and prices fell below average for the federal time since 2011. so the end of the day mother nature has the last say. >> neil: but these weather, reef rated price gyrations short-lived? do they have much staying power or depends how long a cold snap lasts but what does history tell you what to expect? >> heating bills could be very, very volatile. but it can impact prices for the next season. we have to keep prices higher to make sure we get rid of suppliful right now for natural gas we should be putting away supplies for winter. and we're not doing that. let's look at the grain market. as joe pointed out, these farmers can't get in their fields. even if the fields are dry, the soil is too cold. that's going to put off -- we were supposed to have a record corn crop. we already could be cutting into
1:25 pm
yield. the worst-case scenario, right now, let's they get interest the fields late, start to lose yield, if it goes to hot and dry like in 1995, we could lose major part of the crop. so we're really going to have to see the weather mott raid -- moderate or i'm worried about food prices and heating prices. >> neil: all this immigration reform talk creating a little pathway to cross the border? yeah? then how'd i get this...

>> neil: so much for talk of a plea deal with suspect number two in boston. reports are right now that -- from the u.s. attorney's office in boston that there is no truth that the government and defense counsel are currently engaged in negotiations to resolve this case. that coming from a justice department official. there had been talk of trying to enter some sort of plea agreement that could enable tsarnaev to escape the death penalty. they say no such thing is being contemplated or even entertained. separately, remember that ricin incident, the tainted letters? federal prosecutors have apparently linked some materials to james everett dutschke, a former martial arts studio opener, they found a dusk mask from a trash can, and some other
1:30 pm
items that tested positive for ricin. when we know more, we'll pass along more. while talk about more of this heating up, signs of illegal immigration is about to pick up. a new poll showing one out of three mexicans would move to the u.s. right now. 20% of them say they would do it without authorization. that would be 22 million people. byron 'york talking about a knew -- new wave coming. these numbers seem to say things are looking good in the u.s.a. >> they're certainly looking better. there's been a debate around the immigration reform debate, and that is, would this big wave of immigration, illegal immigration we saw, will that happen again? we know that immigration from mexico fell dramatically in the great recession. there were as mean people leaving as were coming over. but what happens when the
1:31 pm
economy gets better? as we all hope it does. that's where the new poll comes in which seems to suggest there are a lot of mexicans who would come to the united states from the pew research center's global attitudes project that's correct surveyed people across mexico, asked if you had the means and opportunity, would you like to come to the united states and live? 35% said yes. one out of three, and 20% said they would come, be willing to come illegal limp now, mexico has a population of 110 million people. >> neil: what's kind of interesting here, when we were going through the recession and the slowdown and the meltdown blues there was little appetite to come to the united states because, well, we weren't doing well. it was a little -- the better we do or potentially do, the more compelling a case you can make for more illegals. and that would compound the illegal immigration problem.
1:32 pm
maybe a lot of them sense the opportunity to get into the country before they get immigration reform done, because you want to be sort of under the tent when that is done. right? >> you're totally right. a lot of this depends on the attitude among mexicans of life in the united states. we saw that drop dramatically in 2010 of the passage of the arizona immigration law. the mexican's immigration of the united states fell significantly. now it's higher and there's some anecdotal evidence that mexicans are being drawn by what they hear about immigration reform in the united states, there might be a mass legalization as part of the immigration reform. obviously it's a long way from being law. there's a bill in congress, a bill in the senate, no bill in the house, but the word does get out there's a possible reform. >> neil: the big macro solution is for the mexican economy to
1:33 pm
improve. i'm sure the president will bring that up to try to get mexico to pick up its economy. nothing works. it's always a basket case. >> the mexican economy is doing a little better lately, and that does play a role in a number of people not coming. but few canada, of the people you know who have gone to the united states -- most mexicans know a significant number of people in the united states -- have they realized their dream? accomplished their goal or been disappoint inside 70% said they realized their dream. there was a much more positive report they were getting from the united states than the ones who were disappointed, which is only 5%. >> neil: imagine. that's all all the duress they go through every day just being here. at least those who are here illegal lie. thank you very much. >> thank you, neil. >> neil: here is the good news. companies like ibm are finally, finally spending all the cash they have been sitting on. now here's the bad news.

they had all this cash. instead of expanding further they're returning money to the stockholers. it's good but just say much about the state of the economy or american business. i don't like it. neil: thanks very much. 20 minutes away, fox business. in the meantime, implementing the healthcare law is getting harder to figure out. >> puts more of a burden on us, and it's ironic, since all these folks say they believe in empowering states, that they're going to end up having the federal government do something we'd actually prefer states to too if they were properly cooperating. >> neil: apparent live the state of georgia is not cooperating. governor, i think he was singling you out. >> well, i'm not by myself. over half of the states are in the same posture that georgia is in, and that includes seven
1:41 pm
democratic governor state including the president's own state. >> neil: he is saying it's slowing the rollout of this health care. and some of your colleagues are saying, it's slowing the rollout of nightmare. explain. we've said for a very long time that this was a train wreck about to happen. and even the democratic senator's response to the legislation admitted that is probably what the future holds. what we see at the exchanges is this. i started exploratory operation in 2011, thinking this would be an opportunity for our state to have flexibility to design an exchange they way we thought it was appropriate. it payment very obvious very quickly that it was going to be a state exchange in name only and that it would be dictated to us as to what we could and do not do by the federal government. so at that point i said, well,
1:42 pm
if they want to do it, then just let them do it because i'm not going to just put our name on something that we can't afford. >> neil: there are other states that are sort of throwing up their hands and saying, all right, we're going to get our public workers on to the exchanges. other private companies that are saying we can't afford these parttime workers. so, out they go. i'm wondering if there's a grande strategy i'm missing? i'm machiavellian -- of a plan to get to a singing payer system, where that was the goal all along, and this is all the pieces leading to it. >> well, i'm one of those that has shared that concern. certainly one way to get to a one-payer system would be to set up a system that fails miserably, and i am afraid that what has been put in praise by the affordable care act is going to do exactly that. and then the approach will be, well, we told you all along that the only way this could be done
1:43 pm
is for the federal government to have total control and to run the entire system. that is not a very appropriate way in my opinion to achieve the kind of changes that the president says he wants. >> neil: i think what the president also said, reading between the lines, it's if not for guys like you fighting, we would be further along. what do you say to that? >> well, don't see it that way at all. the data hub that its essential to making this entire thing work, is not in place and does not appear it will be in place within the time frame that is called for. but i think in a bigger sense, neil, what we're seeing is that it's going to have a serious impact on the cost of insurance, and in the state of georgia, our state health insurance benefit plans for state employees, has already increased by 14% because of the provisions of the affordable care act. and that is before the big ones

>> we borrowed one of michelle's from tricks. [ laughter ] >> neil: without saying a word in the vanity photo spread. they portrayed him comfortable leaning back and we should focuses more on what the president is doing from the desk is whether he has his feet up on the desk. he has the style and pennsylvanias a, that is more than enough. >> what is funny about this "vanity fair" photo essay, the reason they put it together was show that the supposed criticism that the president was so formal
1:57 pm
and therefore didn't reach out to congress was incorrect. i am not aware there was a criticism he is so formal and this photo essay doesn't disprove the criticism that he doesn't reach out to congress. more important point, neil, i might be exaggerate a little bit but i think he could dress up like mr. potato head, as long as the economy is suction seeding, the people would be fine with it. >> neil: what is interesting this idea he has be more old school, back slapping, meet with your opposition, romp alleged analogy. he joked about that. a lot of you say i should have a drink with mr. mcconnell. turning on them and getting a good laugh. no matter what he does, it gets a good laugh from the media? >> i think that is made a joke
